East Rumors: Wizards, Danilo Gallinari, Raptors, Pistons



Free agent guard Fred VanVleet is among the top targets for the Rockets in free agency, per Fischer.

“The Rockets, sources said, are considering short-term, high-salary contracts in order to land top-target free agents with their $61 million in cap space,” Fischer wrote. “It would take a maximum contract to ultimately lure VanVleet from Toronto, sources said, which would top out at two-years, $80 million.”


The Pistons are exercising the $1.8 million team option on small forward Isaiah Livers, per James L. Edwards III of The Athletic.

Livers averaged 6.7 points and 2.8 rebounds in 52 games last season, his second in the NBA. So for Detroit to keep him on a minimum deal is considered a no-brainer.

As an aside, the Pistons are also expected to pick up the team option on guard Alec Burks.
